Re: New Transformers Movie Info

Well Prime has been looking like the way he looked in TF1 since at least the G2 era, granted the flames are new, but if you look at a couple of the Generation 2 toys, even Armada and later Primes weren't cab over tractors. Even though that style does work well for a limited transformation, but I don't have too much of a problem with his current look. I just wish they gave him his iconic gun instead of a simple "tube" cannon instead of a hand.

Although Arcee is 3 bikes was a rumor I wished was false. She was never a combiner. Plus it completely invalidates the Arcee toy from the last movie. Unless Arcee is more like A-R-C for Arcee, moonRACER, Chromia?

I'm a purist, but even I acknowledge there's no way Arcee could be a single motorcycle given size limitations. A combiner is the way to go for that. In fact, I'm surprised it's not more than 3.

Re: New Transformers Movie Info

why? I mean she wouldn't be a BIG bot, but she'd be alright if she was one bike... although I suppose you're right there's not a lot of mass in a single cafe racer, even a big ol Harley with the touring kit wouldn't be enough I suppose... but hell make her a cop bike with a side car LOL oh wait... they did that already...

So how are they going to reconcile this Devastator with the other one from the first film? Just two Transformers which happened to have the same name?
They probably won't. They had to rename Hook into Hightower because of copyright, and since Bonecrusher is dead they had to replace him too. And who the hell is Overload?

Overload is probably Bonecrusher?

This all could be Sarcasm, but I wouldn't get attached to the female Transformer Arcee

Re: New Transformers Movie Info

Doesn't bother me one way or the other, but it seems like a strange thing to talk about before the movie comes out.
